Why choose BOSS Online Summer Programme?

  • BOSS was one of the first, young learner schools to launch online activities and lessons for 8 to 17 year olds. You can check out what we have been up to on our YouTube channel here.

  • Right now, our teachers are completing a 120 hour “teaching online” course so they will be well qualified and prepared.

  • We will not only be offering formal online English lessons but also online activities which are more relaxed and give our students the opportunity to practise the English that they have learnt “in class” in a more natural and fun atmosphere.

  • During break times, we will be leaving our online classroom “open” (and supervised) for students to chat and get to know each other as they would in a normal school common room.

  • Our online staff will go through a training session to ensure that they are well prepared. This will include safeguarding.

  • We will promote and encourage the same atmosphere that we do in our physical school with a focus on fun, social interaction, confidence boosting and independence development. This way, should the students ever decide to come to BOSS, they will already feel invested in the school and programme as they will understand the atmosphere and know some of the staff.

  • We will use staff who know and understand the BOSS ethos very well.

Level Testing

Part of the application process will involve taking the British Council’s online placement test which can be found here. The test has 25 multiple-choice questions and should take 10 to 20 minutes. You will be required to share the results of this test when completing the booking form.


We would also appreciate it if you could please let us know the current level of your child according to their most recent school level or exam results.

The Classroom


Our online summer programme will take place using Zoom. Zoom is a fantastic video communication app, with an easy and reliable platform for video and audio conferencing across mobile devices, tablets, desktop computers and laptop computers.


You can download Zoom for free here and our teachers will help those who are unsure how to use it become familiar with it in their first session.
